New 'Mockingjay' Trailer Shows Katniss Getting Ready For Battle - Awesome Or Too Short?

Because Jennifer Lawrence is Jennifer Lawrence, she manages to sell The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 with just her face by the end of this teaser trailer. Overall, Lionsgate is taking it much slower with the marketing materials this time around, focusing on ‘teasing’ the movie as opposed to releasing anything concrete. By this time last year, we’d already gotten two full-length trailers for Catching Fire, not to mention several posters and promotional material.

In contrast, for Mockingjay, we have two Propaganda videos, one one-sheet poster, and this newly released teaser trailer. What gives, Lionsgate? You made us wait all this time only to release that?

To be fair, the teaser is excellent. It’s dark, emotional, and shows an increased sense of scale from Catching Fire to Mockingjay. The scope has been expanded to include all of Panem, and we see the full scale of rebellion as the the Capitol tries to battle against its own people. We see the people scamper up trees to get away from Capitol soldiers, and we see them running up some sort of spiraling stairways. And then we see the Mockingjay symbol burned into a crop field somewhere, with President Snow intoning that anything or anyone associated with the symbol is banned.

Up until that point, we’d only seen the back of Katniss as she walked among a group of people, all looking at her as though she was a god. And then, someone asks her if she’s going to stay and fight with them. The trailer cuts back to Katniss’s face, and with a look suggesting fear, resolve, and determination, Katniss sells the revolution by admitting, “I am. I will.”

Chills! It’s an effective teaser trailer, but I still want more! I’m hoping the next teaser comes out next month, especially since we only have a few months to the film’s release.

    I loved the other movies! It isn’t long enough, but like you said, that’s a teaser trailer for you! I can’t wait to see this.

  2. I am probably one of two people in the world that didn’t see the original which is weird because I love Jennifer Lawrence. I want to be able to watch them back to back now. Everyone knows that a sequel is never as good so they are just trying to build it up better.

    I’m super stoked about this movie. I love the books, and they’ve done a fairly decent job keeping the movies true to them.

    I watched the first movie and just couldn’t get into it I know that I am the minority on this one but I hope that everyone that likes these movies enjoys this one too.

    I might be the only person in the world that’s not a huge Hunger Games fan. It’s a great story, it just stresses me out so much that I can’t enjoy it. Weird, I know. I watched the first movie and thought it was very well done. The second one makes me so mad/stressed. I might watch it if I’m forced into it. But I won’t go willingly. Not because it’ll be badly done, but because I’m a nervous mother hen with probably an anxiety disorder. πŸ™‚

    Hunger Games was on Netflix and I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. I got through about 30 minutes and said I don’t like this and turned it off. I was the same way with the Twilight movies…
